New post just for you....

I have been doing so much better at blogging more often but it's been a week so I'd better get one posted while Noah sleeps.
Several days ago Jason's mom took Noah and I (and Serena and Issac were there too) to the Mexican restaurant. This is how it went down.
 Noah likes the cheese sauce. But seriously who doesn't. Shoot now I want some of their cheese sauce soooo bad. Anyway, Serena put a little on his plate so he could dip some chips in it, which he did. Then we looked over and he was licking the plate. It was hilarious.
 I know it looks a bit like snot but it's not. It's cheese sauce. :)
 When the bowl had just a little left she gave it to him and in went his face.
Seriously I want that cheese sauce.
 I put Noah's Elmo doll in the Ninja Turtle van (used to be Jason's when he was little) once and now he puts him in there all the time and drives him around.
 I have been wanting to do Christmas crafts but I don't have any crafting supplies or anyone to do them with so Noah and I colored. I drew some Christmas pictures and Noah made pretty lines and squiggles and took some bites out of the crayons.
 He likes to draw.
 Here are Noah's newest tree ornaments. They never stay in the tree long but it's super cute. Here is one of his books
and a toy giraffe that came with the zoo he got from Santa last Christmas.
Yesterday was Jason's grandma's 84th bday. We went over last night and spent some time with her, played games, and ate yummy food. Jason's aunt and uncle and 2 of his cousins had come to visit for the occation. It was a lot of fun. We sure love spending time with our family.
Today Noah is 21 months old. I can't believe he is only 3 months away from being 2. That's unbelievable. I also can't believe that Christmas is so soon. This month has gone way to fast for me.
We had yet another ultrasound yesterday. Still definatly a boy and he looks healthy and adorable. He's already a whopping 8 ounces.
I hope you are all enjoying the season so far!

Last night we went to our church Christmas party. We had dinner and then there was a talent show. Then......Santa came. Last year Noah surprised us and didn't cry but I was just sure he would cry this year. Not so. Jason put him down by Santa and when Santa reached his arms down for him Noah put his arms up and went to him willingly. I was amazed and so happy.
 It cracks me up that he sat on the arm of the chair.
 He looks so adorable. He was really interested in Santa and was really excited to see him.
 He isn't crying here. After he got his little treat bag he made this really cheesy, silly, fake grin. It was pretty hilarious.
We had a great time at the Christmas party and it was so much fun to see Noah with Santa.
This morning Noah was really sleepy and whiney. I put on an episode of Sesame Street Old School (Noah loves it) and then when I looked in at him this is what I saw. So adorable. After a little while he had moved down a bit and his head was on the couch. I wondered if he would fall asleep but then he sensed me so he sat up. Just as well. Don't want to ruin his afternoon nap (now). I look forward to naptime. :) 

Our weekend

This past weekend we traveled to Jason's dad's house for Christmas with him and his wife. It's normally a 3 hour trip but since we didn't have anywhere for Tessa (our dog) we ended up having to drive an hour and a half out of the way so my sister could watch her. Thanks Laura! So the trip took a lot longer (plus stops to walk around - preventing my lovely blood clots is a must).
 Noah hates being in the car for more than maybe 30 minutes but we could get him distracted sometimes with his favorite books. He loves to read.
 Finally at the Beasleys and as you can see Noah took some interest this time in ripping of the wrapping paper.
 He got this Mickey Mouse book, LOL Elmo, a little train and some candy. He was so happy. Thanks Roger and Christine!
 All the kids (including the big kids) went outside and played.
 Noah ran around (he loves outside) while all the bigger kids and adult kids played tag. Now this wasn't just tag as you may remember. They of course got rubber balls involved where they threw them at each other...hard. Oh those Beasley children. :) Gamers to the max. This is Jason and our nephew Ashton (8).
 Then they started playing badminton. Noah finally found an abandoned raquet. He was so thrilled. Jason, Noah, and Jason's sister Serena.
 Noah got to stay in his first hotel (thanks Liz and Dave)! He did pretty good. He woke up once in the night and I held him for a few minutes and then he stood back up. I told him to lay down and go to sleep and he actually did. It took him a while to fall back asleep and he did a little whining but I was impressed. He was pretty impressed with the hotel. He ran around, took a bath, ran around in a diaper and read books.
 Then he opened the drawers and kept turning the tv on and off. What joys!
 In the morning on the way back to Jason's dads Noah got to eat his first cinnamon roll (not homeade unfortunatly). He really liked it and he looked super adorable eating it.
 Such a cutie.
 We spent a little time there in the morning and then we headed off to Laura's to pick up Tessa. Noah did a little bit of sleeping
 and playing with his toes. I can't keep shoes and socks on him in the car. We hung out at Laura's for a little while and then headed home.
Somebody was tired.
We had a good trip (although we all would have liked less of a drive - Noah isn't that pleasant for long car rides). It was good to spend time with family!

Did I mention.....

That we are having another boy! No name yet. We didn't get Noah named until the morning after he was born so don't hold your breath that we'll get this one named anytime soon. :) He looked healthy and even waved to us. He's nice like that.

The Christmas Train

 Stand back a little kiddo.
 He was cracking me up pressing his face on the open glass front to the entertainment center. I kept trying to get one with his nose smashed onto it but he moved too fast.
 Spending a morning with his Mommy, a banana bread muffin, and Christmas cartoons. Couldn't get much better.
 Noah loves to read. Loves it. I love when he brings me books or when I look over and he is looking at books on his own. One day I was reading him a book that he doesn't really care for. Halfway through he closed it, got down, went over and picked up another book, turned it over to look at the cover, nodded his head yes and then brought it to me. So cute.
 He has started lining up some of his foods lately before eating them. It's pretty adorable.
Tonight we went downtown where they had a short "train ride" in town. We waited in line and everytime the "train" passed Noah got so excited and would wave and wave. When it passed he would stretch out his arm, open and close his little fingers and say, "more, more".
 Here's the "train". He loves trains and win.
 The "train" passing by.
Complete with Santa. During the ride he kept waving back to him. He had such a great time. After we had our ride we let him walk between us holding one of our hands each (the only way he won't try and run off by himself). He was having a blast. Until of coure he saw the car. Then when I tried to put him in the car he threw himself to the ground and cried. Poor guy. We did have a great time. It must be hard to be little and not understand why we can't keep doing things (it was almost bedtime).
What a fun night!

O Christmas Tree

Last Wednesday we decided to put up our Christmas tree. Noah was really excited. He really loves all the lights. He loves to look at the Christmas lights on the houses in town. He loves Christmas. That's my boy.
 He looks so stinking adorable kneeling there.
 Watching the tree's progress!
 Being a helper and fanning out the branches.
 He tried to copy what we were doing. This is him fanning out the branches. I love that kid.
 Can you tell he's excited. I could only get him half dressed.
 Admiring his work. :)
 He sometimes puts his toys in the tree.
 Mr. Potato Head pieces.
 His ball.
Seriously adore this boy!

Noah's first haircut

 We have a really hard time getting Noah to go to nursery at church. He cries hysterically. This particular week they got him to go in for about an hour so they took a picture to show he was doing long as my friend Brook was sitting right next to him apparantly. Too bad it's not her actual calling. :)
 Here's my little guy playing with his toys on the windowsill. I love this picture. He looks so adorable. However, you will have noticed he really needed to get his first haircut. I kept putting it off. My baby would look older.....but it was needed....badly. So I took him to Brook's house and she cut his hair. Thanks Brook!
 He was not a fan.
 I still haven't got a really good picture of it but here is a picture of him waking Jason up. You can kind of see it. He looks cute although it's amazing how fast it's growing in already.
What do you do after a bath. Noah? Gets wrapped in a towel and then runs in to play XBox with Daddy of course.
